Offshore services support specialist Petrofac has completed a project for Nexen Petroleum – part of the Chinese national oil corporation) – in its Golden Eagle Development Area in the North Sea.

The field is expected to reach peak production of 70,000 boe per day later this year.

Delivered through its Plant Asset Management consulting business, this involved the development and implementation of a maintenance programme for the Golden Eagle installation, located about 40 miles off Aberdeen. 

The launch of the maintenance-build work in Nexen’s SAP system follows two-and-a-half years of work with the company. Plant Asset Management has been involved in the project from an early stage, working closely with Nexen to develop the maintenance programme in readiness for first oil.

Steve Johnson, Vice President, Plant Asset Management, said: “We are proud to have forged a good working relationship with Nexen over many years.  Our team of consultants is looking forward to providing ongoing support for Nexen’s North Sea assets as they progress through the asset lifecycle and Golden Eagle moves through operational phase and beyond.”

Plant Asset Management has also secured a number of projects with Nexen’s Buzzard and Scott assets to assist in the optimisation of maintenance and critical spares identification
